Re: Piper Seneca in high altitudes?

By the time you’re there, you’ll probably be out of the flightlevels and redline nowhere near a critical Mach. I think it would have to be a really really cold day for it to happen. Could be but my point remains that there’s a secret, un-published limitation waiting for you out there. I’m sure some...

Re: What's in the briefings?

Flight_student think of the briefing as the lesson and the flying as lab time to prove the lesson. First you do the theory and then the practical.

Re: Best guess when recalls could happen

What were the hour requirements to go to Jazz or Porter 10 years ago? Anyone remember? 15 Years ago you needed anywhere between 3500 and 5000 hours. And it was WAY more than that in the ‘90s. Hopefully we won’t regress That far but I think the days of 1000hrs and away to the airlines are gone for a...

Re: When do you think flying will be back to february 2020 level

I wish you the best but this we are dealing with now is like 10 times worse than 9/11. :( I agree. I’ve been flying since the mid ‘80’s. I thought the couple of years following 9/11 were pretty bleak. There were a lot more factors involved in the down turn than just the terrorist attack but the cata...

Are there any airports in Canada east of Montreal with 2 runways that don't touch? Other than maybe something with a parallel grass runway..?

Re: IFR clearance on the ground at Qikiqtarjuaq?

Simple. You don’t. The airspace is uncontrolled up to F/L 180. That means that you don’t need nor can you get a clearance or any kind of flight following in that uncontrolled airspace. IF you're heading into Greenlandic controlled airspace (which begins at FL60) then you need a clearance into contr...

Re: Takeoff Minima vs Runway Level of Service

That 1/2 mile you see applies to anyone and everyone. A lot of operators are approved down to 1/4 mile with conditions regardless of the published requirements. However, the runway in question HAS to have a level of service that supports it.

Re: Commuting In/Out of Uniform & CBSA

If the aviation industry operated airplanes to the same standard CATSA secured airports and pax, there wouldn’t be a need for CATSA as there’d be no aviation industry what with all the accidents.

Navy Canada Building?

My wife is an instructor with Nav Can and she works in that building. It’s being extensively renovated for sure, but Nav Can isn’t moving out. And they fill the building. There is no extra space for a corporate Headquarters.

Re: Chieftain Icing

Yep, about ten years ago running around in the maritimes. That was about 15 mins exposure until we could get out of it. I hesitate to call it severe icing as the boots kept knocking it off the leading edges, but we were pretty anxious until we got clear of it. Also brushed up on reading a GFA after ...

BTW Photo fly, while I do my leg work, how about you look up some V speed definitions 'cause Va and Vo are both regulatory speeds and are Not the same thing.

Re: Maneuvering Speeds versus Cruise Speeds

Well Photofoy, you're still not right. The work airplane, built by bombardier, also has a sliding scale for Va based on weight and stall speed. Now that you've made it a 'thing' , I'll guess I'll dig out the books and publish the numbers. Before I do that, just wanna say, after 10,000hrs, 30 yrs of ...

Re: Maneuvering Speeds versus Cruise Speeds

Photo fly, notice the decreasing speed of Va with weight and therefore stall speed? I don't imagine the beefiness of the hinges changed much with the weight of the airplane. If the manufacture could just publish 1 number and stand by it, I think that they would have. Regardless, I'll enjoy my warm f...

Re: Maneuvering Speeds versus Cruise Speeds

Photofly:

While the far you quote is correct, it is NOT the whole story regarding Va. It IS directly related to stall speed. That is why even a lowly old C 172 publishes a lower Va at lighter weights.

Re: Maneuvering Speeds versus Cruise Speeds

Jim Notice that the airplanes with the lowest wing loadings have the lowest Va's? Bet they have the lowest stall speeds too. As Va is tied to the bottom end of the speed envelope, any airplane with a lower Vs is going to have a lower Va too, assuming Va is based on the same load limit. It is also wh...

Re: Maneuvering Speeds versus Cruise Speeds

I notice when I look at your list, some of the airplanes have quite high Va's, such as the Thorp T-18. My explanation of Va stands. I suspect that the quoted Va's are at a much higher, and designed for, G loading. Quite probably with a G loading while operating in regards to aerobatic level of G's. ...
